Amazon is coming to East New York. They are taking 211,000 square feet for a delivery station set to open during the second half of 2021, Crain’s New York Business reported.

The station will be located at 12555 Flatlands Ave., near Erskine St., to be known as the Brooklyn Logistics Center and owned by Wildflower Ltd. This is the second lease signing in East New York for Amazon.  The first location is at 2300 Linden Blvd. will be a 90,000-square-foot last-mile distribution center.

“We are excited to continue to invest in New York State with a new delivery station that will provide efficient delivery for customers and create job opportunities for the talented workforce,” an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement.

Wildflower Ltd. purchased 12555 Flatlands Ave. in 2018 for $25.3 million, according to property records and they are now leasing the property to Amazon.

Amazon claimed the facility will create hundreds of full and part-time jobs that will pay at least $15 an hour.

    We should be promoting sustainable and ecologically competent business models. I would like to see fewer corporations in East New York and more small business ownership. This is just like Gateway Mall. Many low income jobs will be created but there won’t be any real gains in terms of wealth or social mobility. Also, shipping cheap goods around the world runs counter to mitigating the effects of climate change. It would be great if we had some sort of entertainment space in East Brooklyn, like a theater or arena.

      I sell on Amazon. I sell art sketchbooks and they’re not cheap. Not all products are cheap. And for now , as far as Amazon opening in Brooklyn something is better than nothing. In this pandemic you want entertainment space ? Look around you . No movies, plays and no large social gatherings. Do you realize that a lot of us small businesses are surviving by Amazon and Ebay online sales?
